Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires In the 2018 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals traded their third- and fifth-round picks to move up to No. 10 overall to take quarterback Josh Rosen.One season later, he now faces possible uncertainty for his future with the team, approaching the 2019 draft.The glaring question from now until April 25 will be: will Rosen stay or will he go?With speculation growing of prospect Kyler Murray going No. 1 overall to the Cardinals, talks have begun about where Rosen could end up — and for what price. 234 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories Related LinksPeter King: 3 reasons to believe in Kyler Murray the NFL quarterbackArizona Sports NFL Mock Draft Tracker: Who’s next for the Cards at No. 1?Nick Bosa: Cardinals would be making ‘big mistake’ passing on meNBC Sports’ Peter King cited two sources who’ve said that Rosen’s trade value is worth a third-round pick.One of his sources is former Cardinals quarterback (2005-09) and Hall of Famer Kurt Warner.“I would give a three for Josh,” Warner told King.The other source, an anonymous NFL GM, said, “Probably a three,” which is “not what the Cardinals would think his value is.”NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted that free agent quarterback Tyrod Taylor was traded for a third rounder, saying that Rosen should be worth more.In 13 starts, the 22-year-old Rosen threw for 2,278 yards with 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He was sacked 45 times and posted a 66.7 quarterback rating, the lowest of any rookie.Cardinals general manager Steve Keim’s decision with the No. 1 overall pick is critical in Arizona’s future as a franchise, and possibly his job security.“Is Josh Rosen our quarterback? Yeah, he is, right now, for sure,” Keim said at the NFL Scouting Combine last week.

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterThe historic Pera Palace Hotel Jumeirah has unveiled a selection of special dishes in homage to the stars of yesteryear including Ernest Hemmingway and Greta Garbo who once graced its rooms and lobbies with their presence.Since the hotel first opened its doors in 1892, the hotel has welcomed an impressive list of guests and the Historical Dinner Menu, offers four courses, each devoted to a famous personality.The starter, Demoiselle de l’Océan, is inspired by the White House’s menu of 1961 as selected by Jacqueline Onassis during her time as First Lady. The combination of pear pickles, avocado and fennel sauce takes you to the eclectic Amalfi Coast; renowned as one of Jacqueline Onassis’ favourite spots on earth. The widow of US President, John F. Kennedy, stayed at Pera Palace Hotel Jumeirah in 1983.The antipasti is named after renowned movie star Greta Garbo, who stayed for 50 days in 1924. Salmon a’la Garbo mixes salmon in tagliatelle with a truffle cream sauce, and will be a perfect company for a glass of crisp white wine.The main course, Lamb Duo, is influenced by Ernest Hemingway from one of his favourite meals in 1923. In 1922 Hemingway arrived at The Pera Palace Hotel as a war correspondent, and wrote his famous novel, The snows of Kilimanjaro, during his stay.Sarah Bernhardt provided the inspiration for the strawberry crumble dessert. As a master of French cuisine and an expert in cooking techniques, she was familiar with glamorous suppers. She gave her custom for weeks at The Pera Palace in 1912 while performing a play at the Yildiz Palace Theatre.With summer approaching, guests at Pera Palace Hotel Jumeirah can indulge in a selection of cocktails with a Havanan twist inspired by Cuba’s great friend, Josephine Baker.Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter Singita has announced

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterSingita has announced the opening of Kwitonda Lodge in late 2019 on 70 hectares on the edge of Volcanoes National Park, where more than one third of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas live in the high-altitude cloud forests.The presence of Singita Kwitonda Lodge on the park border will help to create a natural space between agricultural plots and the habitat of the estimated 320 mountain gorillas that find sanctuary here. From a guest perspective, the opening of the new property puts gorilla trekking within easy reach and in combination with a classic safari at Singita’s private concessions on the Serengeti plains in Tanzania. Besides gorillas, there is much to see and explore, from the Afro montane forests of Nyungwe National Park to the vibrant and sophisticated capital city, Kigali.Working in close partnership with the Rwandan Development Board and local communities, Singita will be taking a measured, long-term approach to conservation on the edge of the Volcanoes National Park, in line with the company’s established 100-year vision to build sustainable revenue streams to fund the preservation of African wilderness for future generations. Reforestation of land heavily impacted by farming is vital, and will initially include the establishment of a nursery and the planting of over 60,000 tree saplings in and around the new lodge. Ultimately, Singita hopes to be able to support the Rwandan government in finding ways to increase gorilla habitat while remaining sensitive in assisting neighbouring communities to thrive economically and socially.Singita Kwitonda Lodge will be built to embody the spirit of Rwanda and offer a tribute to the lodge’s namesake – Kwitonda – a great silverback gorilla whose legend lives on in Rwanda and was known for his humility and gentleness. Fundamental to the design is treading lightly on the land. Singita Kwitonda will offer eight suites and a villa with magnificent views of the Sabyinyo, Gahinga and Muhabura volcanoes and sustainability is at the core of the construction project. Luke Bailes, Founder of Singita, states that an extensive sustainability framework was compiled in the design stage to ensure design efficiency throughout the project. The architects and interior designers are selecting locally sourced and produced materials for walling, ceilings and surface finishing. The local community has been engaged in building traditional dry stone walling on site for specialist areas within the landscape. ‘We believe this project will set a new standard for construction and landscape design in Rwanda’ notes Bailes.Rates for suites range between $1500 – $1750 per person per night, fully inclusive but excluding gorilla trekking permits. Reservations are now open.Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more

Just one in ten people have said they will consider postponing a planned holiday as a result of the disruption.The International Air Transport Association yesterday (April 28th) praised the efforts of the European Commission in providing relief to the air transport sector in the wake of the disruption.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more
